What is Internet Protocol Address Management (IPAM)?
Internet Protocol Address Management (IPAM) is a method for achieving end-to-end planning, deploying, managing and monitoring of an IP address infrastructure. From a single viewpoint, IPAM lets you see data from both the IP address infrastructure servers and Domain Name System (DNS) servers that reside on your network, and it lets you manage it.
With IPAM, you can make certain that your repository of assignable IP addresses remains up-to-date. It can also help simplify and automate the administration of several tasks related to IP space management, including writing DNS records and configuring DHCP settings. IPAM can further help your organization turn raw data into a valuable asset, as it allows you to collect data related to devices, networks and services and present it in a format that you can analyze and act upon.
There are two ways that you can implement IPAM: either through the manual accumulation of data (usually in a spreadsheet) or through a software-based solution.
